Jan. 5, 2010 -- President Obama plans to announce new measures to tighten up airline security today, after the failed Christmas Day bomb attack. He has already moved dozens of names from a terrorist watch list to the no-fly list.
Still, the failed bomb attack could have real consequences for the airline industry. USA Today reports that a small drop in air travel demand could cost airlines hundreds of millions of dollars in revenue.
Whether people stay grounded because of increased security hassles, fear of attack or some other reason, it would only take two to three lost passengers per plane to pose a real problem for U.S. carriers.
So, our question to you today: Have you changed your travel plans because of the Christmas Day bomb attempt?
